Grown Ups is a 2010 American comedy film directed by Dennis Dugan and stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider. It depicts five friends of a high school basketball team reuniting for a holiday weekend after learning of the passing of their coach.
Grown Ups was produced by Sandler's production company Happy Madison Productions and was distributed by Columbia Pictures. Sandler, Rock, Schneider, and Spade all joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in the 1990–1991 season; supporting cast including Colin Quinn, Maya Rudolph, Tim Meadows, and Norm Macdonald have also been SNL cast members. Although the film was heavily panned by critics for its crude humor, acting performances and lack of substantial plot, it was a major box office success - which led to the creation of a sequel, Grown Ups 2 (2013).
